Why perform?

We asked some professional musicians and music teachers this million dollar question.
Here’s what they had to say. 

Watch this short video to find out how performing helps students grow, achieve their goals and feel successful.

Getting the chance to perform what you have been working on is a great way to…

  • Celebrate your hard work
  • Practice performing in front of a safe group of fellow musicians
  • Learn from the experience both as a performer and audience member.
  • Build confidence!
“I love seeing the growth in each of my students and celebrating with them,” says Melissa Sondergeld-Hood, voice and piano teacher at Confident Voice Studio.
Piano teacher Western Li-Summerton believes performance is “beneficial for students because it shows them the power of their musical gifts. To know that your performance can create positive change in a listener creates meaning and value in a students music education.”

How does performing help students grow, achieve their goals and feel successful? 

When you perform, you learn a lot about yourself and the areas you need to grow in.

If you’ve set any musical or performance goals throughout your journey, a performance is the perfect opportunity to see how far you’ve come and assess were you can grow.

When you perform, you are exercising your ability to share an expression of yourself. Performing, like giving a speech or a presentation, builds your confidence.

What’s more, the process of learning and producing a finished product or piece of music presents a template for students to carry in to other aspects of their life.

Students learn to comprehend difficult aspects of learning, and to enjoy the process of polishing a song.

Top Tricks for Killing Procrastination

Procrastination is something that can ruin your day, damage your career and negatively impact on your relationships.

Often, we laugh about procrastination as though it were an amusing habit and sometimes it can be. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t also incredibly destructive. Imagine it’s 4pm and you have work you desperately need to finish by 5pm but you can’t stop browsing Facebook or making trips to the kitchen for cups of coffee.

What happens? One option is that you end up going home very late and lose out on time with your family. Another option is that you end up not finishing the work and starting the next day incredibly behind.

Either way, this is a serious problem.
